(Neb.)-CSC Women Win, Men Third At Rapid City Cross Country Meet
RAPID CITY, S.D. -- September 7, 2019 -- The Chadron State College women's cross country team finished atop the team standings at the 2019 Hardrocker Cross Country Classic, held in Robbinsdale Park at Rapid City on Saturday morning.
Junior Madi Watson, crossing the finish line in a time of 21:30.74 after traversing a 5,000 meter course, was second overall in the race to lead the Eagles' women, finishing only behind Montana State-Billings' Nikki Aiden by little more than five seconds.
Another junior, Emma Willadsen, was fourth individually, while true freshman Jordan Jones rounded out the top five.
The Chadron State men were third, behind host South Dakota School of Mines & Technology and Billings, led by Jesse Jaramillo who was fourth in the collegiate individual standings with a finish of 28:28.08.
The overall winner in the men's race was former Eagles runner Dylan Stansbury, who won by exactly 27 seconds in a time of 27:50.74, competing independently of the team race, in the open meet.
The Eagles had not won the women's competition at the South Dakota Mines race since 2015, when Rebecca Wolf took top honors overall and the ladies swept the top four places.
Chadron State's runners will compete next week at their home meet, the Chadron State Open. The Eagles are the two-time defending women's champions at that meet, while both men's and women's teams won two years ago.
